Description

A Committee of Dissenters addressing Churchmen, Brother Ratepayers and Neighbours asking them to confirm the decision of the Vestry by voting against the Rate at the Poll on Monday or Tuesday.

"We, the Dissenters of this Parish, again appeal to your Love of . . . Fair-play. We ask you to help us, in the endeavour to remove from our shoulders this galling Badge of Inequality, which is the last remaining mark of the Insolence which once disgraced our country.
Often have we heard you say, 'I wish the Law was altered; I do not wish Dissenters to be compelled to pay for my Church.' We call upon you to give proof of your sincerity.

Etc., etc.,

A plain question is before you - 'rate or no rate?' At the vestry you were called together to provide the necessary funds to defray the expenses of the year; you have the option of raising this by a rate, or in some other manner. The meeting on Saturday last decided that there shall be No Rate; we call upon you to confirm the decision of the Vestry by voting Against the Rate at the Poll on Monday or Tuesday."
